Coatings for paper maché coffee cups?



61360-1
November 21, 2021

Q. Hi! I'm a paper maché artist, and have set myself the challenge of making useable coffee mugs made of maché-ed cardboard. I'm still looking for a coating to waterproof the inside, that would be food safe at drinking temperatures of between 155 °F and 175 °F (70 °C to 80 °C).

Grateful for any help!

A. Try beeswax. Waterglass may be option. Japanese lacquer (urushi ) can be used too. Hope it helps and good luck!
